Pouch Treat Bag Tutorial

Hi Everyone! How was your labor day weekend? We had a nice weekend. Lots of swimming and snacking and cocktails and shopping and just hanging out. I can't believe that summer is over. Although it will stay hot around here for a while. My kids soccer season has started and some of their games can be brutally hot!

I am sharing a tutorial today that I did for the Momenta/Helmar blog event. I made pouch treats bags using Momenta product and Helmar adhesive. Want to see how I did it?

You will need:
1 square piece of paper (I used a 6x6 piece from the Chloe's Garden Paper pack)
good adhesive


Fold the square of paper in half on the diagonal.


Fold one corner up and in, having it meet on the opposite edge. Add a little dot of Helmar Permanent Adhesive Runner to hold the corner down.


Using the other corner, make a similar fold. Again use the Helmar adhesive runner to hold the corner down.


Fold one layer of the top corner down to create the pouch.


I then used my trusty punches to create a fun embellishment for the front of the pouch. I used the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for my button. This adhesive is strong!!


The great thing is how versatile these pouches are. They can hold just about anything!


The 6x6 pouch is the perfect size for a gift card or some Airhead candies.


You can squeeze open the pouch a bit and then a handful of Starburst candies is perfect inside.


 Aren't these fun? They are super easy and you can make them in any size you want. Just make sure you start with a square piece of paper and then you use the same folding technique.

Happy beginning of the week!! Thanks for stopping by today!
